McGregor: "I don't agree that Jones is avoiding Aspinall."

Former UFC two-weight champion Conor McGregor commented on talk that the promotion's heavyweight division titleholder Jon Jones is avoiding a fight with Tom Aspinall.

"I disagree with those who say that Jones is avoiding a fight with Aspinall. The fight between Jon and Stipe is much more significant. Aspinall has a chance to win the undisputed title, so the matchmakers have paired him with a great opponent. The fight between Tom and Curtis Blades will be a good one," Championship Rounds quoted the Irishman as saying.

The fight between Jones and Stipe Miocic is expected to take place this November at a tournament in New York, USA.
